“Man with a Movie Camera”

I was asked to watch this originally silent film from Russian director Dziga Vertov for one of my photography classes. Filmed in 1929, it’s an awesome film that was so far ahead of it’s time. Many groups since have added their own soundtrack, but the accompanying music created by The Cinematic Orchestra fits unbelievably well with the movie. You can see the whole thing here on youtube. If you don’t have the time to watch the full hour long feature, at least watch about 10 minutes, or just put it on for background music. One of my favorite parts comes later at about the 45:27 mark. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed!
